Here comes our most time-consuming outfit post which covers about one-month time. It was pure astonishment and enthusiasm in mash-up when i got this Heartbeats Vintage Jacket denim jacket with pop art patches on the back. Thus, in the very first place, I simply wore it with patchwork denim overalls from 3.1 Phillip Lim as pants with matching ‘triple-clutches situation’. However, following up a host of thoughts on which the ensemble might be a little too drama-free to blend in that dramatic jacket, I turned out to reverse the jacket on the front while squeezing one sleeve into it. A corset-inspired strapless top or jacketed one-shoulder denim dress whatever, the jacket does get transformed into a versatile piece which might possibly found around summer stables. A pair of distressed jean shorts was what initially came to me, yet I went for overalls as pants eventually. For a record, this ensemble exudes a loyalty (or more specifically frenzy) to Lim’s vibe (you know how much I dig him besides ourMr. Wang) since both the shirt and overalls are from 3.1 Phillip Lim, while Roy Lichtenstein‘s creations were the initial inspiration of his Pre-fall 2012 collection.
Trace back to last season when slogan t-shirts took off to make their way on every trend report, this Zone Music tank top from Acne Studios was seen everywhere, indeed! The ubiquitous tidal wave of Music made it out of stock ubiquitously within the blink of an eye, thus, I had been being one of those who were regretful of not purchasing it on a whim, until I coincidentally discovered it as an unused on eBay few weeks ago. JAMMY huh!
‘I want to bring some elements of civilization inheritance into the modern technological life,’ asserted Simon Gao, who was ‘ trying to express a different sort of urban style‘ via his fall/winter 2014 collection. And with stirring beats and drums performed by live band Pet Conspiracy, the show also slightly featured a tone of belligerent enthusiasm.
Designer Gao’s collection was in shades of white, grey, black, and dark goldenrod with touches of embroideries and jacquards. Leather in the first few looks was well executed by approaches of pleating, matching fur sleeves, and even with small circular twists embossed. The shoulder lines of coats continued into sleeves creating a slouchy, deconstructed silhouette that felt kimono-inspired but quite current. Sneakers, according to Gao, was a taking point of the collection that ‘helped women discover their internal charm’, as well as ‘extending an easy, exhilarating, and comfy attitude towards life and aesthetics.’ I personally had a special craving for the waist belts worn over the coats that dominated the proportion of the collection. They added an extra hint of masculinity which was flattering and like a bit flirty.
Last but not least, I’ve also covered some backstage scenes in the case that you might be interested. Click through the slide shows and catch a sneak of them!
Back to the runway of Beauty Berry Fall/Winter 2014 collection, the color palette majorly consisting of school bus yellow, dark grey, and luminous red had that modernized feel of something bold, exhilarating, and graphic. Panda prints and jacquards dominated in pullover, jacket, and even blazer shapes which extended a soaring percentage of sartorial hilariousness. Many of the tailored coats seemed built for speed with rounded shoulders and aerodynamic construction, while the cutting was quite clean, soft, and minimal. Gowns were also seen extensively through the collection.Without even a seductive touch of over-exaggeration, however, they were well put together with a dedicated focus on draping and a twist of three dimensional structure. Anyway, the next time you gonna sport your Mickey Mouse pullover, go panda.
